X Minus One
- Publication date
X MINUS ONEX Minus One aired on NBC from 24 April 55 until 9 January 58 for a total of 124 episodes with one pilot or audition story. There was a revival of the series in 1973 when radio was attempting to bring back radio drama and it lasted until 1975. The show occupied numerous time slots through out its run in the 50's and thus was never able to generate a large following. X Minus One was an extension of Dimension X which aired on NBC from 1950-51. The first fifteen scripts used for X Minus One were scripts used in the airing of Dimension X; however, it soon found its own little niche. The stories for the show came from two of the most popular science fiction magazines at the time; Astounding and Galaxy. Adaptations of these stories were performed by Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts. They even wrote a few original stories of their own. The writers of the magazine stories were not well known then but now are the giants of today. These stories came from the minds of Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and Poul Anderson to name a few. This series has survived from its original airing in high quality to be enjoyed today.

Subject: The 2 otrr pages
That "singles" page lets you stream or download individual stories .
OTRR also has this page you're on, for what the group used to call a "certified collection" (and now refers to as a "researched set" or something like that), where you can download three CD-size zip files with all of the episodes the OTRR researchers could find, plus pdfs of research materials and artwork.
Go to "Download options: Zip," and choose "Show All" to get a view of the contents of each zip before you commit to the download time and storage space for 600mb zip files! Probably not something you want to do on your smartphone.
I hope the next round of OTRR updates can include links between the "singles" archive pages and the "researched series" zip collections, and maybe give some clue to the contents of non-audio documents.

Jan Trageron - truly Machiavellian bureaucrat; right up there with O'Brien in 1984... scarier than any alien.
"i like being fat, it makes our relationship more poignant"
"the average man is exactly where he was ten years ago when we took over - except he's got a new god."
"get a hold of yourself and stop taking fantasy in the veins"
"i said shut up"
oligarchy at it's finest. right down to his manipulation of those rebels who think they're hunting him.
